Red's Story...
My name is Red and here is my story:
I am called Red because I look like a little red fox. I even have white markings on my face. My fur coat is very thick and soft.
My owner dropped me off while he was going away and promised to come back and get me. To my disbelief he never came back. That is how I ended up at animal shelter.
I loved my person and became gravely depressed. I would lay at the back of my kennel all day and night. Fortunately, the staff and foster lady knew I needed a foster home. Each day at my foster parents I become more comfortable. I have stopped asking to go out so I could look for my person. I have realized he is not coming back and I need to begin with my new life.
Not surprisingly, I now suffer from anxiety so I need someone who will be home with me more than gone. I become very attached to my person and can be protective of them. No kids, and preferably no other dogs. I have not been exposed to cats.
I need someone who will not kennel me and let me sleep in their human bed with them. I love car rides and so far seem potty trained. My walks are very important to my mental health, walking decreases my anxiety. My current mommy and daddy make sure I get walked 3 times a day. After my walk I go right to the kitchen to “sit” and get my soft treat. I’m happy now and I wag my tail constantly. I also love playing with toys.
There are just a few last things you should know about me. I am vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. I do need to get a good dental cleaning. I'm a 7 year old, male, Chihuahua.
If you are very special and can meet my needs, please contact my foster mom Gretchen. Her cell is 734-320-3867.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Red, a Jackson Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Jackson, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Jackson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jackson already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jackson breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jackson paves the way for another one to be saved.
